Detunized releases Binaries, Phase Facets & fTable + Digitals Bundle Universal

Related: , , Posted in news on Mar 25, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Detunized has released three new Universal libraries.

Detunized Binaries, Phase Facets & fTable

Binaries is a collection of FM sounds taken from a Soundblaster ISA card.

Each Binaries patch is made of several velocity layers that reproduce the authentic sound of an 4 Operator OPL3 FM chip and brings you an unique mixture of pristine FM clarity and dusty Digital to Analog conversion.

Phase Facets is based on the Interactive Phase Distortion principle.

IPD synthesis was meant as an effort to simplify sound programming compared to classic FM and it is capable of producing bright and lively tunes with sharp attacks and digital precision. Phase Facets Universal delivers 31 multi-format patches that trigger “filter-less” and “non-substractive” sounds with rich harmonic content and agile brightness.

fTable features an enormous collection of synthesized waveforms that were created on a Hohner HS1E sampler!

All sets of waveforms use the additive and hand drawing capabilities of this unit. The samples are recorded through the samplers proprietary 16 Bit DAC that is a little harsh but also gives unique colorization to the sounds.

Each library supports samples and players that read these formats: SFZ (Ploque Sforzando, Cakewalk SFZ player, Directwave and many more) NKI (NI Kontakt) SXT (Reason Sampler) EXS (Logic Sampler) FXP (Halion Sampler).

The libraries are available for purchase for 9 EUR each.

The packs are also included in the new Digitals Universal Bundle.

Digitals Universal Bundle

Digitals Bundle delivers some of the most famous digital synths from the past decades.

Select your sound from 244 included presets that are built around a 4 Gig sample pool with more than 6000 samples.

Enjoy the lively sound of a TX81z, a TG77, a WSA-1, an OPL-3 FM chip, the Prophecy or both of the famous Hohner sampler/synth devices.

The bundle is available for purchase for 49 EUR.

Precisionsound releases Multimonica II sample library

Precisionsound Multimonica II

Precisionsound has announced the Multimonica II, a sample library featuring a vintage analog synthesizer that combines vacuum tube synthesis with a fan-powered reed organ, and is equally at home in electronic and acoustic music.

The Hohner Multimonica II was designed by the German engineer Harald Bode in the mid-1950s. A predecessor to the Clavioline tube synthesizer, the Multimonica II combined vacuum tube synthesis with a fan-driven reed organ.

We sampled both the synthesizer and organ sections of the Multimonica II, capturing every setting and register for each note on the original instrument. After fine-tuning and seamlessly looping the samples, we rebuilt the Multimonica II within virtual samplers for use in your music.

For the synth section, you get the true sound of the analog instrument with huge improvements in control and stability, way beyond what’s possible with the real thing.

Multimonica II features

  • 205 stereo and 350 mono 24-bit WAV samples.
  • 8 multisampled synthesizer settings.
  • 5 multisampled accordion-style registers.
  • 2 programs for NI Kontakt 3-5 with scripted performance controls and GUI.
  • 14 programs for NI Kontakt 2.
  • 20 programs for Logic EXS24.
  • 13 programs for SoundFont.
  • The total size of the library compressed is 345 MB.

Multimonica II is available to purchase for $59 USD (CD/DVD backup for additional $9.95 USD or/and digital backup for $3.95 USD). All formats are included when you buy Multimonica II.

AudioThing releases Organetta for Kontakt

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jul 12, 2013 - comment 0 comments

AudioThing has announced the release of Organetta, a virtual reed organ instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

AudioThing Organetta

The Organetta is a small portable reed organ made in the late 50s by the German company Hohner*. The sound is generated by an electric fan that blows air into a set of brass reeds hence the sound is reminiscent of something in between a melodica and an accordeon.

We sampled this little green friend with two mics: a large diaphragm condenser mic and a piezo attached to the chassis. The fan noise has been removed from the samples but you can choose to add it to the mix or play it alone by pressing the green keys. To add more realism we captured 6 round robin of the key down and up noises.

Organetta features

  • 6 Kontakt Instruments (.nki).
  • 144 Samples (44.1kHz / 24Bit).
  • Two Mics (condenser and piezo).
  • 17 sec long notes samples.
  • 30+ sec long fan samples.
  • Two intensity layers.
  • Formats: Kontakt and WAV.

The Organetta library is available to purchase for the introductory price of 12.90 EUR until July 22nd, 2013 (regular 16 EUR).

Soniccouture releases Clav sample library for Kontakt

Soniccouture has announced the release of Clav, a sound library for Native Instruments featuring the sounds of the Hohner D6 clavinet.

Soniccouture Clav
Featuring 31 velocity layers (14,880 samples – 9GB), Soniccoutures’ new intelligent round-robin system, release samples and a fully modelled pickup / preamp section, Soniccouture Clav brings the Hohner D6 Clavinet to your DAW like never before.

Few instruments get fans of funk grooves drooling like the Hohner D6 clavinet. Originally intended for classical harpsichord-esque duties, but really sonically closer to an electric guitar than a piano, its twangy, spanking timbres add a melodic tension to a groove like nothing else. To achieve the iconic funk sound it is paired with a wah-wah pedal – one of the earliest examples of this was on Up On Cripple Creek by The Band in 1969.

The D6 contained 60 strings that are amplified by two active pickups, one above the strings close to the bridge (Upper Pickup), and one below the strings (Lower Pickup). The instrument is played from a keyboard, which launches little hammers that strike and hold the strings in place. When the hammer is released, the dampers at the end of the string stop the sound. The D6 also has a Mute slider, which brings a felt damper over the resonant part of the strings to create a different timbre and shorter decay time.

Clav features

  • 9.6GB Library (5GB on disc).
  • 24 bit 48 khz sampling.
  • 31 Velocity layers + intelligent round robin.
  • Modelled Preamp switching.
  • Seperate Pickup sampling.
  • Kontakt Player Compatible.

The Clav library costs 99 EUR/£89 GBP/$119 USD.

Acousticsamples releases Clavi D9 sound library

Acousticsamples Clavi D9

Acousticsamples has announced the release of the Clavi D9, a sound library based on the well-known clavinet D6 by Hohner.

It is probably one of the most “funky” instruments ever invented, despite the fact that it was originally intended for classical music as its sound is close to the hapsichord. It turns out that it was very well suited to replace or double a rhythmic guitar and was used in many Funk and Disco hits.
The clavinet has 5 octaves (60 keys) and works in a simple way, when you press a note, the string is pressed against a bridge just like a hammer-on on a guitar, the non muted part of the string vibrates and the pickups amplify the sound.

The D6 has very few controls, 4 eq switches and 2 pickup switches to choose which pickup has to be used plus a global volume. We recorded both pickups and we modeled precisely the eqs, as a result you can use the whites switches exactly like on the real instrument. We sampled every possible aspect of the instrument, normal notes, staccatos, releases, mutes, every pickup, sympathetic resonances and more to give you the most authentic Clavinet sound possible.

Clavi D9 features

  • 2,76Gb, around 4500 samples.
  • Realistic staccatos.
  • Precise simulation of the original filters.
  • Separation of both pickups and independant volume.
  • Sympathetic Resonances.
  • High quality Amp simulations with the most used models.
  • Real Wah effect with different pedal models.
  • Complete FX selection with Phaser, Flanger, Tremolo, Chorus, Distortion and Spring Reverb.
  • Real mute samples.
  • Control over the MIDI response of the library.
  • Advanced UVI scripting giving you access to a simple yet powerfull interface and advanced features.
  • and more…

The Clavi D9 for UVI Workstation 2 and MachFive 3 is available to purchase for $99 / 79 EUR.
